    jam-packed and fun-filled

    This book explained everything in great detail and it was all fairly straightforward. Some of the information can be mind-boggling and very narrow at times, but that's bio for you. Basically, it's explanations are clearer than those of some other books out there, and it was nice to have such a competent book in such a vast subject.

    Not difficult to understand in the slightest.

    I am a sophomore in high school and find this book to be pleasantly simplistic though very thorough. The text is not 'jumbled together' as another might suggest, but very well organized into eight units, beginning with the fundamentals of atoms and molecules and working its way up to ecology. This text is also highly regarded in the eyes of the scientific community. Perfect for any Biology enthusiast.

    Top Notch Textbook

    Logically organized, the key concepts are repeated and stated at the beginning of each chapter and each section. Important terms are in boldface and thoroughly defined in the glossary. Chapters are sequenced sagaciously. Abundant figures delve into more advanced concepts and provide appropriate background information.

    Textbooks literally do not get better than this. This book was designed to be easy to read and comprehensive which it accomplished in both aspects. All other undergraduate textbooks I have used pale in comparison to this wonderfully convenient biology student aid.

    Not good

    Horrible book. Well of course it is, it's a textbook, how could it be enjoyable.

    I will say I got an A in the class which means the authors probably knew what they were writing about. The biology concepts in the book were definitely solid, I learned a lot even though I only read about 3/4 of the book. Pictures were nice, good colors, solid spine, nice quality book.

    I thought about stuffing it full of fireworks and blowing it up, instead I sold it for a nice price. Wasn't too bad.

    tough read

    this is a complicated book- alot to take in- Would be nice if terms- or vocab was clarified in the begining of each chapter- and not just in the body of the reading- it does not high lite key points- and so if you are doing soemthing and need a quick reference- you need to review whole sections instead of just certain objectives.

    I Also Recommend:

    Biology 8th AP*Edition By Campbell, Reece et al.

    I thought some of the organization could've been better... clarity 8th vs. 7th is an improvment (it glosses over less archaic material) which i call an improvment. ::thumbsup here::

    It's good for AP Bio or any freshman bio course in college (intro of course). I gave it a low innovative rating (because 7th vs. 8th with exception of minutia and some photos, little changed, like the improvements or radical changes are so minor it's like no change at all).

    Recommendations reflect, um needs of basically AP Bio'ers/any potential USABO'ers. I also generally recommend sorry BN, checking out your local library for books before shelling out $100+ for any of these books, you'll be surprised what you can find free for tax dollars. LOL.

    Enjoy everyone! I recommend campbell to everyone!

    Overall A Good Book

    It is for the most part very detailed and the majority of topics are explained very well. I think a few chapters are somewhat vague. It is definately not an enjoyable read, but it gets the job done.

    This Book is Awesome

    I am a 17 year old high school senior and I am taking AP Biology. This book is one of the few text books that is enjoyable to read. It is excruciatingly detailed, but it is always explained clearly. There are many diagrams and examples to explain everything. In fact, it is so effective, that I read the cell respiration chapter ONCE and got a 97 on the test. There is a reason why this book is the college standard. Highly Reccommended

    Poor AP Textbook

    As a High schol student, taking an AP Biology course, this is not the most student oriented book out there, nothing is explained in simplemen terms, and while reading, have a dictionary within reach, It will come in handy.
